"I have worked with Tom on several purchases and sales over the past 12 years and can't speak highly enough about his expertise and dedication. Most recently he sold a home for us in record time, getting three offers the day it went on the market. Then he patiently went through nearly four months of searching for a new one, often times talking us out of offering too much or pointing out hard-to-see downsides of various houses or areas. Ultimately we found the perfect house and Tom helped negotiate a great deal for us. His years of experience in Marin and network of agent contacts helped us make a quick sale of our old house and find a new property that had not been seen by many people and grab it early. Tom is not an aggressive, pushy sales type - he is smart and methodical and really works to ensure his clients get great representation."

Scott Allen, Publisher

"...You are an outstanding professional. You are conscientious, responsive, patient and creative. Your willingness to make the extra effort to be certain that things are done carefully and properly is appreciated. Because of you (we) are confident that we have made good decisions along the way...You have been a great help and more importantly, you have become a good friend. Sincerely yours,"

Mark Gaumond, C.P.A. and Vice Chairman, North America, Ernst & Young LLP

   

" Tom took great personal responsibly in selling my home for me in Fairfax. He reviewed every detail from helping make lists to prepare for sale, to patiently going through all contracts with good humor and a great attitude. But what was of greatest value was his knowledge and instinct with the market. Because of his guidance I had a buyer for my house in one week...and at a price that was great for all involved. It was an incredible relief to work with someone so professional in every way."

Suzanne Baid, Special Effects Producer, Lieberman Productions

" (Addressed to Sandra Shaefer, Manager Coldwell Banker, Sausalito). I have found that our system of buying and selling property often creates divided loyalties for real estate agents. Incentives are structured in ways that pressure agents to represent the transaction, more than the buyer or seller...Tom Dreyer consistently avoided this temptation. He gave us the perspective of his experience, but never pressured us...As a result, he gave us complete confidence in him...This kind of performance enhances the reputation of your profession."

Dennis Aftergut, Chief Assistant City Attorney, City and County of San Francisco



   

"...As with any transaction, there were also hundreds of little details. Processes that had to be adhered to. Contracts that had to be understood. Legal ramifications that had to be considered. Statements that had to be composed. Papers that had to be signed. And timeframes that were short. Yet you stayed in touch without ever being an annoyance, you went through the details with great patience and you efficiently got the paperwork done as if my wife and I were both in Mill Valley (I was of course in N.Y.C. during this process). Tom, I thank you for acting as our agent and am more than delighted to recommend your services. I wish you continued success."

Lester Barnett, former Creative Director, Foote, Cone & Belding Advertising

As you know, I interviewed 5 agents before choosing you...When the offers arrived it was clear to me that my house had been marketed in a very effective manner as the 9 offers received were well beyond what I had hoped for.
